www.odyssey­golf.com Head­weight: 350g

Grip: Su­perStroke Pis­tol GT Tour or Su­perStroke Slim 2.0 (Counter Core)

Toe hang: Face Bal­anced

TECH: A time­less, best­selling head de­sign, but new fin­ger-shaped grips on the stain­less steel face plate are com­bined with a ther­mo­plas­tic elas­tomer feel layer to in­ter­act with the ball at im­pact.

WE SAY: It’s amaz­ing the 2-Ball is still so pop­u­lar; it’s been around for years. As much as our testers loved the feel and roll de­liv­ered by the mi­cro­hinge in­sert, the 2-Ball’s over­all body de­sign came in for some ques­tion­ing. There’s no get­ting away from how round the head’s edges are. Com­bine all those curves with two huge, ball-sized align­ment aids on the top and that’s a lot of cir­cles to aim squarely, par­tic­u­larly if you like work­ing in straight lines. Hav­ing said that, the 2-Ball shows the path away from the ball bril­liantly, and now the feed­back and roll are un­ques­tion­ably bet­ter than any 2-Ball put­ter be­fore.

VER­DICT: The new in­sert makes this iconic de­sign bet­ter than ever be­fore.

For us, a straight red line across the cen­tre of the discs on the top would raise this de­sign up to a whole new level.
